Islamic countries meet in Pakistan to discuss humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan

Dawood Ahmed :

ISLAMABAD: Islamic countries are meeting in Pakistan to discuss the prevailing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan here on Sunday. Pakistan has organized the summit to discuss ways and means to support Afghans who are in desperate need of support.

Envoys from 57 Muslim countries and delegates from other countries are invited to participate in the summit. The meeting of the Organization of Islamic Conference is the first-ever largest conference about Afghanistan since the US troops left the war-ravaged country.

After the return of the Taliban in power in the impoverished country, the assets of Afghanistan were frozen and the nation of 38 million people has been facing starvation especially in the current winter season. A humanitarian crisis has prompted Pakistan as a neighbor to invite all Islamic countries to solve issues relating to the impoverished country.
